Annual Banquet 2020

Our 2020 banquet tickets are now on sale!

This year’s Annual Banquet will be held on Saturday, February 1st, 2020 at The Burford Theatre. The theme will be “Old Hollywood: Roaring 20’s”

Creekstone Farms Premium Beef will once again donate the meat with Chef Andy Groneman providing his talents at the grill.

The entertainment for this year will be a jazz singer and her accompanying band, Holly and the Guys, and we couldn’t be more excited about this fun addition to the banquet.

Tickets are $30 for individuals and $226 for tables of 8.  

If you are interested in attending contact us at the Chamber office and reserve your tickets!

Get ready for a night of being Ritzy, Spiffy, and spifflicated as we listen to a fantastic canary and whangdoodle. All while drinking giggle-water, making static, and putting on the ritz.

This is the Bees Knees of a Sockdollager of the year! 

Don't know what any of that meant? Looks like you've got some catching up to do! Don't worry we have it right here for you to study!
